Music: Dunes, by The Alabama Shakes

Good bands are hard to find.

This is an album and a band I can listen to anytime.

I’m not alone on this. The Alabama Shakes recently won Grammy’s for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Alternative Music Album.

Here’s what The Verge has to say about it:

“Alabama Shakes, still enjoying their ascendance into the mainstream, is a study in American music’s past and present meeting to grasp at the future. Sound and Color exists in a place beyond the rock and soul box the average listener might confine them to. The Shakes blend jazz with garage punk, old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll and neo-soul. It’s a carefully simmered stew that makes them hard to define, classic and unpredictable all at once.” Read the rest here.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep saying it; this is great stuff.
